Case Summary:

A materials science expert from China came to NAILG seeking help with her National Interest Waiver (NIW) approval. So our team ensured to build a strong petition for her, customizing the application with facts picked up from her academic and professional documents. Some of the information used is as follows:

  • Details of proposed endeavor: Her proposed endeavor was to develop novel smart soft materials with unique characteristics using her expertise in molecule design, liquid crystal property, and optical system design. She wanted to enable their application in advanced optic and photonic devices such as lasers, beam steering, spectrum scanning, adaptive lenses, tunable color filters, reflective displays, thermography, and switchable smart windows.
  • Importance of her research: Her research advancing her proposed endeavor is of great importance because it enables the development of improved stimuli-responsive soft materials such as liquid crystalline materials. Thus her proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States. Among the applications of her work with smart stimuli-responsive materials are energy generation and saving. Among other applications, her research is relevant to the improvement of soft materials and the production of more energy-efficient materials.
  • Funding Information: Due to its evident national importance, her research has in fact been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Air Force Research Laboratory, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the Natural Science Foundation of Jiangsu Province.
  • Academic Acclaim: Her research has resulted in 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) which have been cited a total of 86 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of materials science. Thus, not only has she successfully completed and published the results of her research in the field, but her research has also gone on to influence her peers.
  • Letters of Recommendation: She has obtained 2 letters of recommendation from experts who knew her work and were appreciative of her work.

She has thus pursued research directly related to her proposed endeavor for 7 years now and her case approval was hence no surprise as her work was indeed relevant for the United States. So when her case approval came through we were proud of having had the opportunity to work with her on the case.
